No notification when user fills out form

Not a bad plugin, but users submit a form and don't know whether it went through. If this was fixed, it would be a 5*

Countdown not working as it should
By , for WP 4.1.1

The maintenance page is working but once the countdown is finished the website stays in maintenance state... pretty useless

Why remove functionality?
By , for WP 4.0

I don't understand the reasoning behind removing well-implemented functionality in an upgrade. I was using the plugin with a custom CSS file, updated, and was left with a black text on white background layout – with no way of re-implementing my style aside from hard-coding the CSS into the plugin.

I'm puzzled, and will be looking for another solution.

Straightforward but missing some customizability
By , for WP 3.9.2

Allows a simple interface to hide your site behind a nicely laid out splash page. The settings do not offer very many options. But on the other hand it makes it straightforward and easy to set up.

The detail that puts me off the most is that I am limited to filtered HTML for the content field. No iframes or scripts allowed. The next time I need a maintenance plugin I will try another one.

Good plugin, but have a lot to get better. Counter not working with wp 3.9.1. Most styles are very child like ... need to mature. Need it´s own configuration screen, apart from plugins interface. But it´s a good one, solves an important problem. Oh! One last thing. To put links at the front end to the developer site (with icons!) is very unfair. Why on earth the developer customer will care about a wp plugin dev site? They don´t even know what is wordpress. Ads should be restricted to the back end.

No images will show when "Plugin Activate" is set to False.

Preview does not work. It only shows the simple text theme. It will not show any of the themes with images.

If you set a theme, log out and go back to the site you can see the theme, but the preview thing always shows the plain text theme if Plugin Activate is set to False.

Setting Plugin Activate to True allows the image to be shown, but it is in a small, pop-up window that does not allow you to see the entire page.

It's broken
By , for WP 3.5.1

Nice plugin! But trying to edit text fields leads to 500 error.

P.S. Russian text in field Title brokes it.
